  1. Is it worth it to try and sell them, or try to complete the sets? I have over 1,000 games on Steam, and half as much in trading cards. I want to figure out what I should do with them.
  2. This is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!
  3. This looks like what I need. I am going to give it a try. Thank you!
  4. Which 5700XT do you have? I would recommend going to the manufacturer's website and checking for a vBIOS update, followed by a clean driver install. That should fix your issues. I did this for my ASUS ROG STRIX model, and I haven't had any of the known driver issues since.
  5. I would recommend upgrading the 2070S. I think that would be the best bang / buck for VR upgrade. a 1060 can still do VR, but the RX 580 / GTX 1060 have always been the bare minimum for a serviceable experience. Oculus also has a custom SDK for the Turing NVENC to do more believable ASR: https://developer.oculus.com/blog/asw-and-passthrough-with-nvidia-optical-flow/?locale=en_US I think that'll be your night and day difference. RAM is cheap now too, so I would recommend you pursue that as well with faster memory that can c
  6. Hi! I am looking for an app / portal that you can link your Steam / Epic / Origin / GOG / Etc. accounts together so you know what games you own and where. I own over 1,000 games, so it would be nice to know Thank you!
  7. I forgot to report back. Thank you for the suggestion. We did go with a 280mm AIO, and we were able to hit 4.3ghz all core with ease under stress tests. This is a gaming + VM box, so he is very happy
  8. Hi all! As the title describes, I am looking for a cool 240mm radiator with full RGB for my buddy's 3900X. We are going to Micro Center on Saturday, and I am curious as to what you guys think! For reference he has a Ryzen 9 3900X in an X570-F motherboard and a Fractal Design Meshify-C case. Thanks!
  9. It may be worth it to sit at 16GB until I absolutely need to upgrade my RAM. I do not want to take a performance hit unless I have to. At the very least, I figure I could set some aggressive timings to get equivalent performance at 2933. Hopefully :).
  10. I have a feeling it will have to down clock to 2933 to hit those speeds, or will I be able to sustain 3200? The challenges I am hoping there are others here who have attempted similar.
  11. I have been considering upgrading my RAM to 32GB in my current build. My challenge is, I do not want to downclock below DDR4 3200 speeds to do it. Has the memory support improved enough to not worry? The same kit I bought 2 years ago is on sale currently, so sticking with a proven kit may help, but I am not 100% sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
  12. You say that, but it really is a major boost for those doing content creation and running a home server. More bandwidth and faster read/write speed will always be better for those types of use cases. For gaming? You can only load a game so fast. They are getting bigger though, so it is an only a matter of time until that is beneficial. That's why, IMO, the faster storage is the biggest perk of PCI-E 4.0. I bet in 3-5 years, We will all be itching for those speeds. It's just how the technology goes.
  13. I would get DDR4 3600 memory just to max out the CPU. I can vouch for both the D15 and the Corsair RMx PSU. Both in my build are great. If you are getting an RX 5700XT, People love the Powercolor Red Devil. It has an awesome cooler for the price.
  14. With that said, X570 and Ryzen 3000 is the way to go. X570 is the most future proof platform on the market, thanks to supporting much faster storage and the new PCI-E spec. In all of my years doing this stuff, I'd say having that stuff is probably more important than everything else. With Socket AM4, you can go up to Zen 3 without much issue. RAM and Storage are easier to upgrade. Video cards will be upgraded. Changing your entire platform because you want faster storage and video cards a few years from now potentially being limited by PCI-E 3.0?
  15. 6 years is a major ask. Just get the 2070S and an 8C/16T CPU. Don't get anything less.
